LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada's attorney general is filing a new legal move to stop one of three lawsuits pending in a battle over a state law to fund the education of students who move from public to private schools.
Attorney General Adam Laxalt asked a judge Thursday to throw out a lawsuit filed by Lieutenant Gov. Mark Hutchison on behalf of parents who Hutchison says have been left in limbo by challenges to the Education Savings Account program.
The program is scheduled to begin Feb. 1.
Laxalt says Hutchison is involved in two other lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the law and has a legal conflict of interest disqualifying him from the case he filed Dec. 22 as a private lawyer.
An aide says Hutchison is traveling and can't immediately comment.
